The clear plastic drainage tube that runs from our Aprilaire furnace humidifier into the basement floor appears to be clogged with brown gunk. How can we clear this line.

One way of removing the gunk is to disconnect the tubing from the humidifier and use a flexible and thin rod that will fit in the tubing and try to dislodge it, or you can try using a shop vac and see if the suction pressure will remove it. If the tubing is really clogged then sometimes it's better to just replace the vinyl tubing with pvc pipe and drain it to the floor drain, I always prever pvc pipe over vinyl tubing when it comes to drain lines for humidifiers.

The humidifier leaves a lot of water on floor , is that normal/

Hi. It looks like more people is complaining about this. It shouldn't happened but I'm think that this is just a big cons of this unit. Return to the shop and buy another one basing on people reviews or use this unit and some rugs

Loud noise

Try checking the pick up tube that spins from the motor to the resivoir. If this is not seated properly or off balance even just a bit, it can cause your humidifier to sound like a small waterfall. Hope this helps

Hi, I just recently purchased a Vicks Cool Mist Humidifier V400 Series. Could hardly wait to get it working. Problem,it did not come with the filter, box doesn't say not included. I have called around, and...

here is the website that you need to order the filter. the filter model number is k04. right now i'm seeing the filter as being 5.99 before shipping and handling. if you have any other questions please feel free to let me know.

Water runs out of the bottom of the unit

Check your plastic water orifice. It is in the hose fitting connected to the outlet tube of the water solenoid. It should be a blue one. Mine was completely eaten through, allowing full water flow, and thus overflowing the distribution tray. I replaced mine yesterday and no more water drips. May as well reflace the filter on the inlet tube of the solenoid at the same time. I used a piece of very stiff, but thin, wire formed into a small hook to remove both old parts. Replacements are readily available from multiple sources on line.

The filter panel may be replaced from the top or bottom but it's less hassle to replace from the bottom because the top tray retains a small amount of water and also because you must be mindful of working around the feed tube assembly. Also, when replacing the filter panel, clean both trays (requires removing both trays, water feed tube and drain tube) and drain tube ... use a 8 water -1 bleach diluted solution or other anti-bacterial solution and wipe the trays and pour some into the removed drain tube (not the feed tube!) and shake it up a bit. Be careful though as you do not want bleach solution getting in your eyes, nor on your skin and clothes!
